Really wish there was a landmark structure like the Men in Black UFOs in New York.

Everything announced so far is boring.

Those giant tree canopies are most certainly a landmark structure, but they don't dominate the site like an observation tower would...

Also, how many of the pavilions will remain after the Expo is complete as most are demolished after most Expos?

Expos really need to go back where they actually display the edge of technology.

Yeah what's been announced so far would be really exciting for an 1980 Expo. Wouldn't even bother going there if I lived in Dubai right next to it because why waste my money on seeing pretty much nothing. Here's hoping they release something exciting down the road.

This expo is just done for prestige and show off. I didnīt expect anything groundbreaking to be planned here.

They forgot the actual prestige and showing off, though. It's just a bunch of bland structures no one would pay money to see, so far.

Dubai had to win. It city development has been like a miracle. The leaders work for the people, not for them selves. By the way, there is also huge progress on the preparations.

I think Dubai won on merit. Sorry for other cities which lost out

Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture has revealed the design of the last major pavilion for Dubai’s World Expo in 2020. Al Wasl Plaza will be located at the heart of the Expo site, acting as a central event hub. Its name “Al Wasl”, meaning connection, doubles as a reference to the city’s history and the Expo’s theme “Connecting Minds, Cresting the Future”.



The pavilion’s dome like trellis will have a diameter of 150 meters and a height of 65 meters!

Now the view from space is very boring, around only sand and desert.
